Weekend Quick Cryptic 23 - by Phil Jordan

My fellow TimesforTheTimes contributor and expert solver, Phil Jordan, and I are continuing to produce crosswords to fill the gap left by the Saturday Times not having one. The plan is for us to alternate, publishing one a fortnight, and this week it's Phil's turn.

You can find  the crossword here and the answers below. This week's crossword has a bit of a topical theme. Can you spot it? Feel free to leave any comments or questions here as you would do on TfTT, or via email to Phil at 1147philjordan@gmail.com.

Click on this label for a couple of hints.
[Hints...]

  • The theme is based on the date of publication and is found in 18A, 16A, 13A and 1D.

  • The word at 20D is maybe uncommon, but is fairly clued and is one of only 2 word that fits the checkers, both chemicals.
